Reveal A Smooth, Youthful,
Radiant Complexion

Laser skin resurfacing is a skincare solution to diminish skin imperfections like wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation. This procedure leverages advanced laser technologies to gently remove the outer layer of the skin, stimulating the natural healing process and collagen production. Among the cutting-edge devices used are those from Sciton and the Jeisys Edge One CO2 Laser, each offering a unique approach to treating specific skin concerns while promoting rapid healing. The result is a smoother, younger, and more radiant complexion.

  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin tone

The Types of Laser Skin Resurfacing Offered

MicroLaserPeel Treatment

MicroLaserPeel Treatment is a laser procedure that revitalizes skin by targeting surface-level imperfections. It uses a specialized erbium laser to gently remove the outermost layer of the skin, addressing issues such as rough texture, dullness, large pores, acne, and pigmentation. The procedure reveals a brighter, more even complexion. MicroLaserPeel uses an erbium resurfacing technology for optimal results and minimal downtime.

ProFractional Skin Revitalization

ProFractional Skin Revitalization is a unique, minimally invasive treatment that uses erbium:YAG laser technology to rejuvenate the skin. Unlike traditional resurfacing, ProFractional treats only a fraction of the skin at a time, leaving surrounding tissue untouched. This promotes rapid healing and stimulates collagen production. The precise laser targeting corrects wrinkles, pigmentation, and age spots without affecting adjacent skin areas.

Edge One CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

Edge One CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing utilizes a CO2 surgical laser operating at a wavelength of 10,600 nanometers, which is efficiently absorbed by water in the tissue. This absorption allows the laser to precisely cut, vaporize, and coagulate targeted tissues, addressing skin imperfections like fine lines and sun damage. The treatment promotes skin rejuvenation by creating micro-perforations, triggering the body’s natural healing response.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs

Is laser skin resurfacing painful?

You might experience mild discomfort during the procedure; however, topical anesthetics and cooling devices are used to minimize any discomfort. Most patients describe it as the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin—uncomfortable but not painful. The intensity of the laser treatment can be adjusted for your comfort. More intense treatments tend to cause more discomfort while gentler treatments are much milder. Dr. Burchhardt will discuss any concerns about discomfort with you during your consultation and will guide you in the treatment choice that is most appropriate for you.

What is the downtime for laser skin resurfacing?

The downtime depends on the type of laser used and the depth of treatment. Generally, gentler treatments may involve minimal downtime with stronger treatments involving several days to a week of downtime. During your consultation, Dr. Burchhardt will help review various treatment options with you to help determine what is most appropriate for you and what will work with your schedule.

Are the results of laser skin resurfacing permanent?

While the treatment can provide long-lasting results, the natural aging process will continue. Regular maintenance treatments and a good skincare routine can help prolong the results.

What are the common side effects of laser skin resurfacing?

The most common side effects include redness, swelling, peeling, and a temporary burning sensation. These typically subside within a few days to a week following the treatment depending on the intensity of the treatment.

How should I prepare for a laser skin resurfacing treatment?

Avoid sun exposure, discontinue the use of retinoids, and keep your skin well-hydrated. Those with a history of getting cold sores may benefit from an antiviral prophylaxis to help prevent an outbreak. Dr. Burchhardt will review personalized pre-treatment instructions with you during your consultation.
